Los Angeles Clippers forward Paul George tweaked his right hamstring on Monday night in the same area where he previously had a strain which resulted in George missing 7 games earlier this season, according to ESPN’s Ohm Youngmisuk.
George scored 25 points and had seven assists during the Clippers 110-100 loss to the Miami Heat on Monday, but was limited to only five minutes of action during the fourth quarter at Crypto.com Arena.
George said he will receive treatment on the hamstring Tuesday and see how it responds leaving his status for the Clippers upcoming back-to-back road trip, against the Denver Nuggets and then the Minnesota Timberwolves, currently uncertain.
“Often hamstrings are very, very serious injuries,” George said. “So, I thought the first approach when I was dealing with my hamstring [during the previous absence] was just good, smart. We waited until it felt better and I didn’t have any issues, once I returned.
“We won’t know more until [Tuesday]. But my job is to do the best that I can and go from there.”
“Just take a day-to-day, see how I feel tomorrow,” George said. “Give myself the best chance to be able to compete, but definitely take tomorrow and just get treatment around the clock. Try to prepare.”
